    If he could beat Starr's championship records I think Rodgers could be number 1. I would place him up at number 8 if he could win another Super Bowl, it'd be more than Manning, and Rodgers has great numbers.

    Powa--if he beats Starr's 5 Championships he will undoubtedly be no. 1 of all time. Man, wouldn't that be great!

    The sky is the limit. It's great to think of this not only as a dream but something that can actually grow to fruition. It's a lofty comparison for now, but certainly one with tremendous possibilities.

    Would be great to see him in that group someday, but I'll take him winning a SB FEB 6 for now.

    JBlood that would be great, happy times to be a Packers fan. I think Aaron is a great QB, and what a follow up from our previous one. Only one interception in the post season could be thought of as his mistake. Rodgers has the stats to be great, and the one that a lot of people overlook that I hate is last year he had over 50 sacks and still up great throws with a low interception rate. Who else does that?

    Rogers? Who is this rogers you speak of? Kenny? jk sorry couldnt resist. Its like when they called Favre's name during the draft.

    CHFF favors championships, so lets see him win multiple titles then compare at that point. 2 gets him on the list, 3 gets him in the top 5.

    I wonder if they would still have Favre as the #10, this list is 3 years old.

    I think Rodgers has a brilliant future, but he's in his third year as a starter. I'm not ready to proclaim a greatest QB currently in the NFL right now. And that doesn't factor in those who are no longer playing. It's hard to compare different eras of the game, and when it comes down to it, it really is an opinion call.

    Aaron is in a better overall situation than Peyton Manning is right now, in that the Packers have a defense. But you can't take anything away from what Manning does on the field. Brady put up great numbers again, but is helped by a running game that neither Rodgers nor Manning had a sniff of this year. Look at what Brees and Rivers can do on the field.

    I hope Rodgers has great success in his career, but I'm far from ready to name him, or any of the others, as attaining GOAT status. I'm simply enjoying the great play we're experiencing from a handful of quarterbacks right now.

    Yeah he has to establish himself the best in the league right now before we can talk best all time.

    Hard to believe Rothlisberger is going for his 3rd. So does he get on the list if he wins?

    I heard Rothlisberger called up his doctor in a panic, he said "Doc, can you help me, I got something on my rapestick!" the doctor replied, "Ben, how many times have I told you, that isn't the correct term for that! We call it your dirty water sprayer!"

    Because of that I think it's hard to think of Rapistbooger as being elite.
    It seems like that anyway.

    Championships lead to greatness. Marino may have been the best pure passer in history, but isn't considered as the greatest QB because of his lack of Championships. Starr is great because of his playoff record, a direct result of his ability to avoid throwing interceptions. No interceptions are much more important to winning than throwing touchdowns.

    The Packers have a chance to establish a dynasty, if they play to their abilities.

    Damn Cold Hard Football Facts is my new favorite place on the internet. I agree 100% with that list, specially 1 and 2, Brady ahead of Manning, not having Aikman in there but Staubach. Damn I agree with everything. Maybe not Sam Baugh at 3.

    How long till Rodgers joins them? A couple SB and MVP wins and he's there.
    But it's too soon. Right now, body of work, Roethlisberger would be ahead of Rodgers.
    Of course, that changes Feb. 6th.

    I was going through a Page 2 at ESPN.com, and was reading a guy (don't remember the name, do not care, wasn't Simmons nor Easterbrook) talking about this SB, and the first paragraph was how the "championships" shouldn't be considered because "the Browns have 8 and that's just wrong". Stopped right there.

    And they're paying those morons to write on the internet????

    A couple things to consider:

    1) Concussions. Sacks are down dramatically from last year but Rodgers still has two consussions this year. Hopefully he doesn't get any more, and this is probably not a serious concern as I think he'll take less risks running as his career progresses.

    2) The NFC North

    Chicago - Count on them always having a good defense.

    Minnesota - D-coordinator is the head coach and they've been drafting well for awhile now. The secondary could use some help, Pat Williams is retiring, Kevin Williams may follow.. Even so, they should stay tough. The QB situation (lack of a decent starter) may affect how long the D is on the field and how well they fare against Green Bay. (You read 'fare' as 'favre', didn't you?) They'll focus on the run game for the short term and attempt more clock control.

    Detroit - Say wha? Defense? I guess it's a wait-and-see but they made some smart moves on the defensive side of the ball last year.

    Not that any of this will necessarily affect Rodgers playing like the top QB (I think) he is, but it may affect his numbers somewhat and a highly competitive NFC North will very likely reduce Superbowl appearances.
